Just so I feel better about myself, here's one thing I did make while the in-laws were in town over the weekend. I'm such a slacker that I'm having to use the pictures from Our Best Bites because I completely forgot to take pictures.
So, I promise, I will try to do better. I have to, right! Christmas is only 38 days away...excuse me while I have a little breakdown!
OK, all better, thanks!
Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 spice cake mixes (Duncan Hines, although not pictured, is the best for this recipe)
1 15-oz. can pumpkin
1/2 - 12-oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Combine cake mixes and pumpkin. Add in chocolate chips.
Spoon mixture into lined muffin tins. This can make as many as 24 muffins or as few as 12, just depending on how full the tins are filled. These really don't rise very much, so you can fill the tins pretty full. If aesthetics are a concern, keep in mind that how they look going into the oven is very much what they will look like coming out of the oven. So a cookie scoop works great to keep things on the prettier side.
Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of one of the muffins comes out clean.
